Description

Enjoy landscaped grounds and shared use of three games rooms during your stay at Chinook meaning there’s plenty to entertain the whole family whatever the weather.

In a rural location on the edge of the ancient village of Castle Hedingham, these two detached, single-storey holiday homes, set in the owners’ 10 acres of grounds, have far-reaching views over open countryside. The accommodation is well-presented and has the added benefit of a heated indoor swimming pool - the pool is shared between the two cottages (refs W43379 and W43233) and both are allocated 3 hours of private use per day (one hour in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the evening - the rest of the time is shared use). There is also a large fully equipped barbecue area which can be hired. Castle Hedingham lies in the valley of the River Colne on the ancient road between Colchester (20 miles west) and Cambridge (30 miles east); it still retains many beautiful timber-framed, medieval and Tudor buildings including Hedingham Castle (a Norman castle, the ancestral seat of the Earls of Oxford). The area is ideal for walking or cycling. Nearby places of interest include the Colne Valley steam railway, Sudbury and Saffron Walden. Shop, pub and restaurant 0.5 miles.

All on ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen. Utility room. 3 bedrooms: 2 double, 1 twin with 2 additional singles. Wet room with toilet.

Satellite TV (basic package). iPod dock. Tumble dryer. Wheelchair access.

Both properties: Electric heaters and electricity by meter reading. Bed linen and towels included. Cot and high chair on request. DVD. Electric cooker. Microwave. Washing machine. Tumble dryer. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Wi-fi (in games rooms). Shared landscaped 10-acre grounds with sitting-out area and furniture. Barbecue (at cost, by arrangement with owner). Ample parking. Cycle store. Shared indoor heated swimming pool (8m x 3.5m, depth 1.2m) with changing room, open 9am to 10pm all year (3 hours’ private use per day). Shared games room with pool table and table tennis. Second shared games room with pool table and air hockey. Third shared games room. Welcome pack. No smoking. NB: 5 steps in grounds.

    What a brilliant hamlet, tucked away in an idyllic location. Villa was HUGE! There was only 3 of us but cottage (villa), sleeps 8. There were several game rooms so you don't need to share with anyone. The swimming pool was heated and a welcomed delight for our daughter who did NOT want to go home after out holiday had ended. The host Terry, was such a lovely man. He was so accommodating and super friendly that he couldn't do enough. He's built a wonderful set of cottages that is secluded and an ideal getaway. No noise, no traffic - just the birds singing in the morning. WE loved it. Thank you. The family that stayed in the Chinnock cottage last weekend. Thank you, Terry.

    Well equipped cottage with nice rooms (bathroom facilities could be better for 8 people) - great pool and games rooms which kept kids and adults occupied when raining!

    Not what the description describes indoor pool cold not heated more than two holiday apartments sharing pool along with the caravan site. Floor boards noisy in apartment. The only country views are when you walk away from the buildings. Inside windows high up and small nothing to look at.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; With regards to this holiday makers comments. I have no idea how they came to this conclusion, as it clearly states in the cottages the time for the pool for each cottage. In no way does it include the campsite and it never has. It is purely for the holiday cottages alone.

    Very pleasant cottage with everything you could need. The local area has plenty to do. Don't miss the castle or the steam railway. Great for little ones. Very friendly welcome and any problems sorted out straight away with a smile

    Overall we really enjoyed it, the cottage was well equipped and spacious, the only thing which we found lacking was the bathroom sink which is so tiny and in a corner that we all found it very difficult to use.

    Beautiful homes, beautiful surroundings and run by a beautiful family. Made us feel so welcome, owner even took me to the shops one evening when I ran out of supplies and I had had a couple of beers so i couldn't drive Will definitely be returning. Highly recommended this place.

    The swimming pool was amazing. The house had everything we needed . The beds were comfortable, but the floors were very creaky. The shower room is a wet room, which could just do with being a bit "nicer". Castle hedingham is walkable and the local village is lovely. A co op is also not far away. It could also do with a more private outdoor area. There is one, but it is communal. Owner very friendly and helpful.

    We booked the cottage especially for the heated pool.the pool was so cold when asked to heat the pool we were told yes twice,the pool never got heated while we were there.when we complained we got very little understanding.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. With regards to this guests complaint, I did everything in my power to comply with her wishes. I am very sorry that this was not good enough. Though it seems the rest of the family enjoyed the swimming pool as they would use it until 9pm. One of the guests thanked me for an enjoyable holiday and everyone else in the party seemed happy. I take all my guests requirements very seriously and all I can do is apologise that it didn't suit on this particular occasion.
